“Enjoyed the day at Great White”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2015

First time to Doral and first time to play the Great White Course. I have played the Greg Norman course in Mission Hills, China, so was interested in the compare. I had heard that it was a very difficult course. I am a 10 handicapper and played from the white tees. Firstly, it is a nice course, but not a great course. It is very open, which reduces the degree of difficulty with no rough to speak of. What makes the course interesting is that it is more like a desert course, because once you get off the fairway, you are on sand and gravel. The course is not for you if you are looking for peace and quiet. The course is directly on the flight path into Miami Airport, so planes are coming directly overhead every 2 - 3 minutes. It didn't bother me as I like watching the aircraft, but may not be for everyone. If I compared the course to Shenzhen, it has all the characteristics of a Norman course, with Greens elevated with severe run offs. The course in Shenzhen is much nicer and much more challenging. The condition of the course was fair to average. I was really surprised at how many unfilled divots there were on the fairways. The Greens roll quite nicely, but in poor condition with lots of Poa growing through, so not very nice to look at. Overall, it was a good day and I enjoyed the experience. I wouldn't rush to return.

“The Great White NOT so Great!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 19, 2014

Trump is in the process of selling this parcel off. In terrible condition and like playing in a large construction site. Greens are virtually un-puttable.

“Great White....Really?”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed November 14, 2014

Staying at what you would think is a 4 or 5 star resort and golf club.....check in was fine, no balls on range!! golf was extremely slow and no ranger to be seen on entire course to keep it moving. If you are looking for a slow round on a mediocre course....this is your ticket!!!

“Needs some badly needed upgrading”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2014

The course is a fun course to play. Pretty wide open and easy.

The bathrooms by the 15th tee are closed. With portapotties substituted. It does not appear that work is underway.

“Nice course, not up to Blue Monster fame but good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 8, 2014

The course is nice. Water everywhere and lots of waste areas (hard pack sand). More of a precision course than a distance course. Very windy days can be a challenge. Well kept and worth the money.
